Investigations have revealed that 17 out of the 19 people who died in a collision between two vehicles on the R34 road between Bloemhof and Schweizer Reneke in North West, on Saturday night, are from the same South African family.
The departed were travelling in a minibus taxi, from Bloemhof, where they were attending a wedding anniversary party. The other two deceased were the driver and his friend.
They were among 22 passengers in the minibus taxi, the three people who survived sustained severe injuries.
A member of the Ntlatseng family, Modisaotsile Molaetsi, who was hosting the wedding anniversary says they did not expect what happened in North West.
“They honoured our invitation, and they attended our anniversary in Bloemhof. I received a call this morning when I was at work. It was from my niece who sounded very down. Sometimes we celebrate, only for things to end badly,” says Molaetsi.
